The Matrix of Earthbound and Extraterrestrial Entities
This IDC Perspective provides conceptual guidance to organizations seeking to understand the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) and its metamorphosis into a new framework, the Matrix of Earthbound and Extraterrestrial Entities (ME3).
"The time has come to discover the space between and beyond the lines of sensors, connectivity, and cloud. Now is the perfect moment for innovators to become inquisitive about what might unfold when the Matrix of Earthbound and Extraterrestrial Entities is explored with curiosity." — Marcia Elaine Walker, research vice president, Worldwide Industry Operations Technology at IDC
"The space-time continuum does not need to be broken or even bent to take advantage of next-generation opportunities. Innovators simply need to recognize that yesterday's technology framework will soon be increasingly conceptually irrelevant." — Alison Brooks, Ph.D., research vice president, Worldwide Public Safety at IDC
